Good for you Gabe on not wanting them to feel entitled, you have to work hard so everybody associated with you should as well.
If he can already prep well and has learned some other tricks along the way then 10. sounds fair to me if he knows next to nothing then run him at 8 for a month or few and then bump him up.
Sean, I feel the same, I would rather see him do something else but he just been hanging out at the house since he graduated. so I finally had it and took him to work this morning. not in a angry way, just hey ya not doin nothing any way, let go learn a trade. I feel it is important that everyone learn a trade, as you can fall back on it. jmo
